Overview

Norman MacLean's best novel yet' - Ronald Black, The Scotsman 'Norman is a 24-carat comedy jewel that just keeps sparkling' - Bruce Morton, BBC Radio Scotland 'Norman MacLean is the Billy Connolly of the Gaidhealtachd' - Calum MacDonald, Runrig A comedian, singer, composer, musician, linguist, actor, author and a favourite of Sean Connery and Billy Connolly's, Norman MacLean is a living legend in the Gaelic world. Tricksters takes the reader on a rambunctious journey around Scotland with endearing but oddly-matched couple, Murdo and Rachel. Murdo is a semi-pro thespian struggling with an alcohol problem; Rachel is constantly on the brink of ending their relationship. And there's the truly appalling television director, Sam, whose Machiavellian schemes are aided by a heavy-drinking Presbyterian heretic from Lewis. When all converge in the Tartan Pagoda Hotel, Uist, what could possibly go right? A hilarious page-turner, Tricksters blends the high style of John Lanchester and the low-life snappy dialogue of George V. Higgins - and it's beautifully translated for the Teuchters by the author.

Meet the Author

Norman Maclean, born in Glasgow in 1936, was educated at school and university in Glasgow, before going on to teach all over Scotland. He garnered much fame after winning two Gold Medals at the National Mod—for poetry and singing—in the same year, 1967, the only person ever to do so. Shortly afterwards he began a career, as he would say himself, as a clown, and it is in that role, and that of a musician, that he is still best-known today.
